My self-summary
Student of life. Laughs loudly. Highly independent. Aggressively passive. Addicted to tattoos. Obsesses easily and deeply. Has a passion for fashion and design. Longs for bygone eras that I've never lived in, only dreamed about. Yea, a Dreamer.

Progressive Liberal. Humans suck, but I still want what is best for them.

I love languages and world religions and cultures. I want to learn a dozen languages, and travel to every country that I can. I'm a little obsessed with different cultures and am currently learning Arabic!

I love poetry. If you're a fan of TS Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Hafez or Pablo Neruda--or any other poets, we should really talk. Also, if you're a Salvador Dali fan, I would love to wax about his paintings.

The first things people usually notice about me
Tattoos, recently. Not sure why as they are not exactly in short supply around here.
And I've been told: my eyes, my lips.
And my smart mouth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
1) Prince of Tides and Beach Music by Pat Conroy; Gillian Flynn; Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald (BUT NOT Great Gatsby); To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee; James Ellroy; Human, All Too Human by Friedrich Nietzsche; Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein; A Song of Ice and Fire series; Brave New World by Aldous Huxley; Censoring an Iranian Love Story by Shahriar Mandanipour; Brandon Sanderson; Mother of the Believers by Kamran Pasha; The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran; the Last Nude by Ellis Avery; Ender's Game and Speaker For the Dead by Orson Scott Card; and many more that I won't list because the list does go on.

2)Repo! The Genetic Opera, Sin City, Gone With the Wind, Time Burton, Streetcar Named Desire, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Shock Treatment!, Casablanca, The Losers, Sabrina (original), the Watchmen, V For Vendetta, LA Confidential, the Black Dahlia, Fifth Element, the Postman Always Rings Twice, Inception, The Lovely Bones, Alice in Wonderland(every version ever made, get over it), Breakfast at Tiffany's(always makes me cry), Anything Horror, Anything Hitchcock, Anything Quentin Tarantino--- more than I could ever list here. Even more so than books, I love film.

3a) I do really enjoy Archer, Dracula, Doctor Who, Bates Motel, Scandal, House of Cards, Gotham, Orange is the New Black, Flash, Game of Thrones, Arrow, How to Get Away With Murder, Catfish, How I Met Your Mother, Once Upon a Time, American Horror Story, and Hannibal.

3b) Phantom of the Opera; Lestat: the Musical; Company; Little Shop of Horrors; the Producers--etc! And Bernadette Peters is a walking Goddess.

4) I listen to everything. Rather then list every genre or band that I listen to, I'm just going to periodically change the artists here so you can get a good idea of what I listen to over time. I tend to get stuck on artists sometimes, and have to devour them before I can move on. I'm currently devouring: Lana Del Rey, Dear Rouge, Sjowgren and (always)MUSE

5) Italian and Chinese are my fave. But I enjoy trying new things.
The six things I could never do without
Besides the obviously bullshit answers like air:

-Spotify/Pandora/Music
-Rain. I don't know if I could ever live in a desert climate, I really enjoy rain.
-a job. I've been at it for far too long. I need my money.
-A computer with decent processing power
-Long Island Iced Tea
-Sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Working abroad.
Languages.
Writing.
Traveling.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking dinner, sipping scotch, studying Swedish, watching movies, working out--who knows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not always easy to get along with. And I've accepted that.
I'm a HUGE JokerxHarley fan. Fanfiction addict and all. No shame, whatsoever.
You should message me if
If you find me interesting or if you think I would find you interesting.
If you're bored.
If you want to be friends.
If you also love something I love and want to scream about it.
If OKCupid says you might be more or less "something" than me, and you think it's bullshit.
If you host a place on AirBnB (Did I mention I love to travel?)

Message me if you're curious.
